Congratulations Rahul Talukder on winning Magnum 30 under 30

The Ian Parry Scholarship would like to congratulate Rahul Taluker, who was nominated Highly Commended in 2014 for his triumphant Magnum 30 under 30 win, one of the most prestigious award for young photographers. 

“I am totally surprised after hearing that I have won ‘Magnum 30 under 30’ People’s choice award. It’s really a great honor to be recognized among so many strong works. I would like to thank to everyone who voted for me.”  

Magnum’s 30 Under 30 award asked for “documentary photography covering social issues” from the young photographers (18-30) around the world. At first they have made a Shortlist of 60 among the 664 photographers. Then, renowned Magnum photographers Chris Steele-Perkins and Moises Saman selected 30 winners among the 60 photographers. There was a people’s choice award by the public voting for the top 3 overall winners. The 30 winners exhibited their work at The Photography Show, Birmingham and all got a chance to have a portfolio review by the industry professionals from the editorial, publishing, museum, advertising, and gallery sectors.
